This is my first set of bamboo utensils, so I don't have anything to compare them to. However, I do think this is a handy little set. I use the spatula to "cut" around the edges of my baked goods to remove them from the pan. I used the spatula with fingers in my non-stick pan to sti-fry my veggies. This was also useful accompanied by the wooden spoon to serve pasta. I like that they are made from more eco-friendly bamboo. The quality is good, not awesome, but they are relatively inexpensive - so a good value for the price. Overall very happy :)

I love this pan!

I bake a lot of quick breads & yeast breads every week & was looking to upgrade my pans. I bought 2 of these based on the good reviews & the fact that they are made in the USA, yay! When I opened the box & saw them for the first time, I was really impressed with how heavy-duty they are. So far I've made quick bread & am already so in love. I usually grease & parchment paper my pans. I took a chance & just greased this pan & poured the batter. It baked evenly & rose nicely. I ran a wooden spatula around the edge & my apple loaf just popped out, no problem! It was beautiful. Eliminating the parchment paper step is really going to save me time. I can't wait to use them again!

So easy to clean!

It was time to retire the ugly plastic colander I bought at Walmart more than 10 years ago. I was looking for an upgrade rather than just a replacement. So, I decided to go with the Endurance 5 qt. The first thing I used it for was to drain angel hair pasta. None of the noodles slipped through the holes & it was so easy to clean. The plastic one was such a pain to clean & noodles always slipped through. It looks like the surface would be rough, but it is very smooth to the touch. Oh, and it looks super cool too! I would say it is money well spent because I don't think it will need to be replaced. And the ease of use & cleaning is worth every penny.
